First-half double earns Villa away win

Bolton 1-2 Aston Villa

  • 10 Dec: Bolton captain Kevin Davies, alongside Villa counterpart Stiliyan Petrov, pay tribute to former Trotters favourite Gary Speed in an emotional pre-match ceremony.
  • 10 Dec: Petrov is at the heart of Villa's best moves and the skipper also gets stuck into the tackles, dispossessing Bolton's Mark Davies.
  • And the visitors take the lead in the 33rd minute when Marc Albrighton turned in Gabriel Agbonlahor's cross from the right.
  • 10 Dec: And Petrov doubles the lead six minutes later - via a deflection off Gary Cahill - from the edge of the Bolton area as Villa lead 2-0 at half-time.
  • 10 Dec: Darren Bent, who missed an excellent opportunity to open the scoring early on, appreciates his skipper's efforts.
  • 10 Dec: The second-half sees the hosts fight back and Croatian striker Ivan Klasnic fires past Brad Guzan from six yards in the 55th minute.
